DUBAI: Apparently cashing in on the popularity of home delivery service among Filipinos in Dubai, an enterprising Philippine-based company has tied up with a UAE remittance firm enabling the expat workers to send popular homegrown brand name consumer products to their loved ones back home. “OFWs can now order Jollibee, Red Ribbon and Goldilocks (cakes), even flowers by Holland Tulips, from UAE and have them sent to the Philippines,” Eduardo Burgos, Jr., CEO of Mohur Inc., said.

This, he explained, was made possible thru the business solution firm’s one-stop shop platform, 247 RegaloPlus, which has been included in the services provided by Al Bader Exchange, the remittance firm, through an agreement approved by the Central Bank of the Philippines’ Intergrated Service Department.

“Yung mga OFWs sa UAE, pwede silang umorder sa Al Bader Exchange ng food packages, cakes at fresh flowers para sa mga kamag-anak okaibigan nila sa Pilipinas,” said Burgos. “Halimbawa birthday ng misis ni Mr. OFW, pwede siyang magpadala ng cake from Goldilocks o Red Ribbon, at fresh flowers from Holland Tulips. Pwede itong i-deliver sa Metro Manila o kaya kuhanin sa any branch ng Goldilocks, Red Ribbon at Holland Tulips,” he said.

Burgos added, “If birthday naman ni Junior, pwedeng umorder si mommy o daddy na OFW ng food package tulad ng Chicken Joy at Spaghetti para ideliver sa eskuwelahan o kaya kumain yung barkada sa pinakamalapit na Jollibee sa Pilipinas.” Under the agreement, Al Bader Exchange will be utilizing Mohur’s two computer software developed “by former OFWs for OFWs,” referring to 247 RegaloPlus and 247 RemitPlus with Anti-Money Laundering Solutions.

Mohur also has tie-ups with Land Bank of the Philippines and Peragram, Inc. (MoneyGram International). Burgos said Mohur’s Business Development Team, led by Heidi Ordinanza-Hung, vice president for marketing, is currently talking representatives from other popular brand names in the Philippines, who are “expected to get on board very soon.”
